Raspberry Ricotta Pancakes ... yum.

The first day of school is coming up fast. The pace picks up when busy mornings get even busier for most families. If you think it takes too much time to whip up a special breakfast on harried weekdays, this recipe will change your mind. Hint: Mix batter the night before and refrigerate - an easy timesaver in getting food on the table and everyone out the door on time.

Special thanks to Tinky Weisblat, foodie and blogger extraordinaire, for all her encouragement and caring in pulling together so many of us to celebrate Massachusetts Farmers Market Week last week!

1 cup biscuit mix
2/3 cup low fat milk
1 rounded tablespoon ricotta cheese
1/4 cup egg sustitute (or 1 small egg)
1/2 cup fresh or frozen raspberries

Using a wooden spoon blend biscuit mix, milk, cheese and egg until smooth. (If making the batter the night before, refrigerate before adding raspberries.) Gently fold in raspberries. Set aside for a few minutes while lightly oiled griddle heats up over medium heat. Spoon about 1/8 cup onto prepared griddle. When bubbles form over the top and the sides look dry, turn the cakes to cook another minute or two or until bottoms are lighltly browned. Serve with a dab of butter and raspberry or maple syrup. For an extra special treat add a dollop of Creme Fraiche instead of butter and drizzle the syrup on top. Makes 6-8 cakes.
